To build on the success of the 2017 National Coaching Conference, Scottish Rugby are pleased to announce that 4 separate regional conferences will take place this year to provide additional opportunities for coaches around the country. 

We are delighted to announce Brian Ashton MBE as one of the keynote speakers for the Borders & East Lothian and the Glasgow & The West regional conferences. Brian was Clive Woodward's assistant with England from 1998 to 2002, and assistant to Andy Robinson in the same role in 2006. He then went on to take England to the 2007 Rugby World Cup final. Brian was the RFU's National Academy Manager from 2002 to 2005. In this role he played a key part in the launch of England Rugby's National Academy system, creating the Junior and Senior National Academies to develop the most talented players at England A, Sevens, Under 21 and Under 19 level.

We are also pleased to announce Ric Shuttleworth as the first keynote speaker for the Edinburgh & Caledonia regions. Richard has worked in elite coach, athlete and team performance, education and support for 20+ years working previously at the Australian Institute of Sport with Olympic coaches, World Cup sports and Super Rugby Franchises.
